London: Everett & Co., 
This autobiography by dancer Maud Allan was published in a year in which she gave over 250 solo performances in England. Pictured here as Salome, Allan became synonymous with the role, arguably capitalising on the sinful aura attached to Oscar Wilde. Allan appears to have always lived as a gay woman, but in 1918 she was mentioned in print by Noel Pemberton Billing MP as part of a bizarre claim of a German plot to seduce the youth of England into a degenerative and incapacitating homosexuality. She lost a suit for defamation in a ludicrously prejudiced trial which destroyed her career.
